What is I.T. Management and Automation?

IT management and automation solutions help your IT teams work faster and consistently while reducing cost and risk. Legacy tools compartmentalize control; rely on complex, proprietary languages; and don’t scale to cloud through container-based architectures. Cloud-ready, agentless management and automation solutions help standardize processes, accelerate IT service delivery, and ensure compliance with policy-driven IT.

Getting started

3 ways automation and management bring value

Organizations often find themselves with multiple scripting tools and resources, resulting in unmaintainable code and silos of automation. Standardizing on an agentless, lightweight automation platform helps bring all of these pieces together.

Resources:

Take the roadblocks out of provisioning and configuration to gain better efficiency and agility. Automated, self-service tools let you provide operations, development, and testing teams a way to deploy and manage their own workloads.

Resources:

IT systems must meet strict standards to comply with policies and regulations. Automation ensures resources are available, provisioned, managed, optimized, and retired consistently which reduces the risk of configuration vulnerabilities through policy enforcement.
